1st logo


WARNING: Do not watch the video if you are prone to epilepsy

Logo: We see many colorful, kaleidoscopic wallpaper-like designs rapidly change and zoom-in towards the screen. When the colors all freeze, the image breaks into lots of green wavy lines dispersing to all directions of the screen on a turquoise/yellow/white lava lamp-like background, which fades-out to reveal a magenta background with a sliding green eclipse. As the eclipse slides away in a circle shape, the Videoring logo appears. The logo consists of the word "Videoring" in a giant futuristic font where the right stem of the "V" and the leg of the "g" form a ring around the word (looking similar to the Original Video logo). The logo is slightly slanted. Then, it fades out and more colorful designs zoom-in towards the screen. As this happens, some blue, heliotrope and dark green wavy floors zoom-up from below and altogether, the colors morph into an aquamarine circle, which then morphs into the Videoring logo, now on a turquoise background.

FX/SFX: All the wavy color designs zooming in, the morphing effects and the lava lamp-like backgrounds.

Cheesy Factor: The logo reeks of Scanimate effects.

Music/Sounds: A 70's-era synthesized disco tune.

Availability: TBA

Scare Factor: Low to high. This logo is quite a mess, and will throw many off.

2nd logo


Logo: On a black background, we see the Videoring logo in tangerine.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: None, a complete jump from the first logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: It's currently unknown whether it was used with the previous logo at some point or not.

Scare Factor: None.
